of state has to work with our allies in latin america, and south america, to come up with a strategy. we can't go it alone. we have to work with those countries. they have to recognize the threat. they have to tell us about who's there, what they're there for. then we've got to focus on our border. these are energy issues with pipelines. these are folks that are coming across our southern border possibly, strengthening that. working with all the agencies. the department of state needs to lead on this. this is their area. melissa: congressman, thanks so much for coming on. interesting stuff. >> melissa, thank you very much. melissa: so next on "money", all you want to do is take a huge bite of that hot, juicy hamburger. but there is always that disgusting wrapper getting in the way, right? well, if you're one of those people just too lazy, too lazy to take the thing off, your troubles are finally over. the edible wrapper has finally arrived. i'm not sure that is it. he may be eating a regular wrapper. at the end of the day it is all about money.

dell specifically focused on this issue this past summer to south america. we're all aware of the iranian threat or their proxies' activity here in this hemisphere. whether it's the thwarted assassination attempt last year where the operatives of the iranian revolutionary guard were trying to use mexican drug cartel connections to enter the united states, to assassinate the ambassador from saudi arabia , or we're aware of hezbollah recently being revealed that hezbollah had a terrorist training camp or a training camp of some origin in nicaragua, here in this hemisphere. last week the iranian deputy foreign minister for europe and the americas visited cuba, venezuela, bolivia and uruguay. this follows the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad's frequent trips to the region. most recently iranian naval commanders have expressed their intent to extend iran's maritime presence into the atlantic ocean, closer to the coastlines of the u.s. with this piece of legislation, we seek to protect u.s. citizens from threats from iran and defend american interests and assets here in this
. when i first became the leader, i took a trip with a number of senators to south america to countries that we american senators had never been to, like bolivia. it was a wonderful trip. it was great for our country and it was good for the senators to learn more about that most important part of the world. i was very fixed on who i wanted to go on that trip with me. but the two i asked to go was judd greg going, new hampshire, who had been chairman of the budget committee; and kent conrad, who was chairman of the budget committee at the time. those two fine senators spent about 18 hours seated side by side, both having tablets to write on and they were working on the number-one issue that they thought was important for this country: what we do about the future of this country economically. and they came up with an idea that was very, very good. it had worked before on closing military bases. madam president, we had military bases that we had been trying to close since world war 1. we couldn't do it. we didn't have the political will to do it. so we had a base-closing commission. with t

[ chiming ] >> you can't even get them in your mouth. oh, my -- good work. >> thank you. this is what happens when you've been pounding campaign all night. you can't deliver a grape into your mouth at close range. >> i'm dead sober. how do they do this drunk? >> you littered the floor with grapes. >> i'm sorry. >> they di
 the south, and i think it is an important detail to focus on because those who don't know the history of the involvement tend to dismiss them as they sometimes use america's mercenaries because we paid for a lot of the military hardware and logistics and the troops also tend to focus the various thais engaged in black-market schemes but the behind it is that they were fighting and they were dying for years thailand was sort of carrying out the war they saw as the war in south vietnam. so the casualties are something that we should keep in mind. >> professor ruth, thai-u.s. relations. thai has been an ally for a lon time yet participated in the and world war ii. >> absolutely. date back to the famous example of offering abraham lincoln war for the troubles of the american civil war. the 20th thais were always close u.s. allies and this was intensified it was disrupted war. but then as the cold war pretty
? i will talk about the bricks in a minute. i am talking about south america, eastern europe, parts of asia. why do i love this story? it is basic macroeconomics. the key ingredients that drive growth. we know the story of debt, deficit, fiscal cliff. we know that the story of the aging population and financing, if you look at the statistics are round or they measure the performance in mathematics, science, and reading, you can see where the problem is. today, they were in the number 27, 28, and so on. productivity generally is the x factor that accommodates for 60% of why one country grows and another does not. generally, it includes things like political dynamic, so we know what is happening there. that is not my prediction. look at this framework, capital, labor, productivity. you will see why i am incredibly bullish. in terms of capital, these economies by a large did not have the debt burden that other countries are facing right now. why is that important? these countries are not suffering from a deal leveraging problem. 60%-70% is under the age of 25. in you got there, over 50
with one another. and i think doing so gives us the history of what strom thurmond's america looks like, and else is rethink not only was going on in the south but was going on in the national conservative political realm as well. rethink and strom thurmond helps us think modern conservatism to a history i think that is too often thurmond is left out of because we only remember him as this kind of cartoonish racist figure from the deep south. let me read you, an excerpt from the introduction. one reason we forget about strom thurmond is because he was so doggone old. right? [laughter] thurmond predated the founding generation of what is commonly understood as the modern conservative movement. he was the closest friend to william f. buckley senior and william f. buckley, jr., the founding editor of "national review" and one of the central figures of modern conservatism. buckley senior be restored in india government state in camden south carolina became a friend and regular correspondent with the then governor thurmond would have had no problem identifying as a strom thurmond american. i
as the on poll i go. >> reporter: the gangnam style song is poking fund of south korea's gangnam district, hence the equine themes. but little subtlety about a song in 2004, lashing out at america's involvement in the iraqi war and their presence in south korea. psy was covering another band song with lyrics translating to violent retaliation against american forces accused of wartime torture and abuse. he has since apologized profusely. speaking of the limits of the language of self-expression and saying he was deeply sorry for how those lyrics that could be interpreted. some say that doesn't jibe with taping at national building museum. in this heady highly political sized times in washington, nothing can be done without a political angle. inside the production team rehearsed. outside in the spirit of the holidays, a public less concerned with controversy, real or perceived. >> it would be tough. i mean, especially to the people. >> reporter: and even a bit of advice for the south korean pop star. >> i would say keep it to the music and stay out of the whole political stuff, you know. >> repor

[applause] >> thank you, tim. to our conservative rock star for the state of south carolina and our conservative rock star for the country and the heritage foundation, center jim -- senator jim demint. >> governor, when you say there will never be anyone like me, most of washington says, thank goodness. [laughter] i am excited about what is going on today. one of the few things i am worried about what i was considering leaving the senate was who would replace me. i knew that governor haley would put someone in this seat that we would be proud of and continue to stand for those principles of freedom and opportunity. governor, thank you for your faithfulness to our cause and your good judgment. tim, i could not be happier today. i can walk away from the senate and knowing that someone is better than i am that will carry the voice of conservatism to the whole country in a way that i could not do. i will keep working with that cause, but you inspired me since i heard you speak in public. our country needs those positive and optimistic v
to uniformerly provide lifetime secret service protection to all of america's former presidents. i want to thank the gentleman from south carolina, mr. gowdy, and the gentleman from virginia, mr. scott, for sponsoring this commonsense bipartisan legislation. america has a responsibility to protect its presidents and its families and not simply while they serve in office. we also have a duty to ensure the ongoing safety of those who serve in america's highest elected office after they leave office. in 1958 congress first authorized secret service protection for former presidents, which was limited to a reasonable period of time after a president leaves office. congress expanded this to lifetime protection in 1965. but in 1994, congress once again limited secret service protection for former presidents. this time to 10 years after a president leaves office. this 10-year restriction applied to presidents who took office after january 1, 1997. the role of the former president has changed throughout the years. former presidents now have a global presence and are often seen as de facto representatives
